Cross-Lingual Learning-to-Rank with Shared Representations

Cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR) is a document retrieval task where the documents are written in a language different from that of the user{'}s query. This is a challenging problem for data-driven approaches due to the general lack of labeled training data. We introduce a large-scale dataset derived from Wikipedia to support CLIR research in 25 languages. Further, we present a simple yet effective neural learning-to-rank model that shares representations across languages and reduces the data requirement. This model can exploit training data in, for example, Japanese-English CLIR to improve the results of Swahili-English CLIR.
